TRIO Talent Search is a pre-college program that provides services to help improve the academic strengths and college readiness of students in grades 6 through 12. The services our Academic Advisors provide to eligible students include individual appointments, workshops, campus tours, and information for parents. All services are brought to the students’ school sites. The topics covered are designed with each age group in mind. The goal of Educational Talent Search is to increase the number of youth from disadvantaged backgrounds who complete high school, enroll in and complete their postsecondary education, and find meaningful employment that pays a living wage.
